Somewhat lost in the mire of last week's stunning upset to St. Mary's and a late season shooting slump, Scottie Reynolds produced one of the best individual seasons in Villanova basketball history in 2010 and was rewarded today with a spot on the Associated Press' All America Team. Averaging a career best 18.5 points per game and shooting over 40% from 3, Scottie displayed unparalleled efficiency at the offensive end and led the Wildcats to a school best 20-1 start.
Reynolds received 32 of the 65 first team votes and was joined by Kentucky freshmen John Wall (62 votes) and DeMarcus Cousins (26), Ohio State junior Evan Turner (64) and Syracuse's Wesley Johnson (45). Scottie becomes the 9th Wildcat to ever earn 1st Team honors, joining Randy Foye (2006), Kerry Kittles (1996), Hank Siemiontkowski (1972), Howard Porter (1969-1971), Bill Melchionni (1966), Wali Jones (1964), Hubie White (1962) and Paul Arizin (1950). He was also named to the Sporting News 1st Team earlier in the week. Despite the sour taste in all of our mouths, take a minute today to reflect on the outstanding career and the great legacy that Reynolds left on this program. Congrats Scottie
